At the end of JoJo season 3: Stardust Crusaders, episode 48:
Dio Brando killed Joseph Joestar using 'The World'. Later on, Dio drained his blood entirely and left Joseph Joestar as a husk.
However, Jotaro was able to revive
Joseph by transferring blood from Dio's dead body into his Grand Dad. (YouTube reference)
What I'm trying to understand though is why
Joseph did not turn into an undead vampire.
Because I remember the episode before that, Dio had previously used his blood
to turn Vanilla Ice into a vampire (the one with the "self-eating" Stand).
